  • The temple is beautiful and relaxing. I visited also the grave of Akira Kurosawa that moved me a lot.  more »
  • In 1225, Jojo Masako built the Jojo Temple to mourn the bodhisattva of Genyori-cho, and after the merger with Zenjo-ji Temple and Tashiro-ji Temple, it is a temple of the Jodo sect that has a history that was made an ansei-in in the Edo period. It entered the precincts from the mountain gate of the place which went up a little from the road, but the precincts with a lot of trees were cleaned neatly. The flowers didn't bloom because they came in winter, but it seems to be famous as the best azalea temple in Kamakura, so i think it's a good idea to choose a season.

  • Just an afternoon stroll through Kamakura.
  • You have to pay 100 yen to enter this place, which is very unwelcoming. Everything, including taking pictures, is forbidden. The building itself is of average temple size. You can see inside, with no window between you and the altar. A lot of golden statues and stuff. The park isn't great but has a really big 700 years old tree.
